One of the tasks of the construction organization is timely and complete provision of construction sites with the necessary and high-quality material and technical resources. However, the modern market approach can't guarantee a constant high quality of products at minimal costs. Minimize the risks for construction organizers the authors of the article suggest through the implementation of a system of unified (continuous) marking of construction material and technical resources. A unified system for marking material and technical resources in construction is proposed to be realized through the use of artificial intelligence and special bar codes applied directly to the packaging of building materials. Such a code can contain necessary and sufficient information about the resource, for example, the identification number of the building material or tool, the series of products, the manufacturer, the expiry date or the service life, information that allows tracing the originality of the resource and its quality.
Artificial intelligence in the construction industry can become a practical tool for analyzing and managing the supply of building material and technical resources for construction sites, and can also be used as an automated recording of the movement of used and damaged resources. The implementation of a unified marking system for construction products at the enterprise level opens up broad prospects for quality control of the products supplied, maintaining registers of bona fide and unscrupulous suppliers. The implementation of the approach at the level of the whole state opens up new opportunities for combating counterfeit products, collecting statistical industry-wide data, and providing new universal tools for controlling and managing the industry at the federal level. It should be noted that similar projects have already been launched in such areas as pharmaceuticals, fur coats, tobacco products, alcohol.
